Mizzou Links: Elon comes to Columbia, and football coaches get paid

New, 895 comments

Mizzou Hoops plays Elon tonight at Mizzou Arena, Missouri's assistant football coaches are both well-paid and probably due for more money, and both Mizzou Volleyball and Mizzou Gymnastics lose key players to transfer.

What's On

Not much Mizzou-related! So I'll use that as an excuse to pimp my Bayou Classic piece from a couple of days ago. You want the Southern band in your life. You need the Southern band in your life.

Up next: Elon

I appreciate the rest of college basketball trying to make Mizzou feel better about losing to UMKC -- SEOSU beating Tulsa, Incarnate Word beating Nebraska, NJIT and EMU beating Michigan -- but I'd appreciate it if Mizzou just went ahead and took down Frank Haith's alma mater tonight. (For what it's worth, Ken Pomeroy's projections say Mizzou has an 82% chance of doing just that.)

And if you're more into basketball recruiting...


It requires 20-hour days and ridiculous scrutiny, but ... damn, high-level college football coaches get paid. These salaries are actually a bit of a bargain...

An odd day for the Mizzou women

Hopefully there aren't many days like this: Mizzou Volleyball announced that setter Loxley Keala is transferring, and Mizzou Gymnastics confirmed that its best overall performer, Rachel Updike, left the team a while back.
